1990s Trained Oscar de la Renta Black Gown

An amazing fine wool stretch jersey gown by Oscar De la Renta that skims over the body and is not meant to be skin tight, yet manages to emphasize every curve. It is long and lean in all the right ways. It is constructed in a long flowing drape of fabric that is all cut on the bias so the gown will move to fit your curves. The bodice is sleeveless and on the front there is a overlay that follows the cut of the top portion to the waist and then extends into ties which you then wrap and use to cinch in the waist as much as you want to create shape. The skirt is cut so it falls in a long, chic column and it is simple and striking at the same time. The back is cut longer then the front so it creates a fabulous train effect. A subtle key hole that extend from the back neck to just above the waist is the perfect finishing detail. This is the dress for when you want to look and feel a mile tall and supermodel skinny!! Really one of my favorites pieces. Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Fully lined in a black tissue silk and closes with a hook & eye at the back of the neck and a hidden set zipper at the back waist. Wraps and ties at the waist. Tagged a 6 but please check actual measurements.
